“The Bachelorette” Romance Reject Nick Viall Blogs About Sex In The Fantasy Suite With Andi Dorfman

While “Bachelorette” Andi Dorfman is busy posting pictures of her fiancé Josh Murray on her Instagram, her number two choice Nick Viall is preoccupied with something else. Getting dumped by Andi, yes, but also why she slept with him in the “fantasy suite” (AKA the place on the show where the couple can be together without the cameras around for an entire evening).

We all watched on the “After The Final Rose” episode as Chris Harrison explained that twice after getting dumped, Nick tried to contact Andi to talk in person. Both times, she refused to see him. The two finally saw each other for the first time on live TV and Nick got the opportunity  — prodded by Harrison — to ask Andi what had been weighing on his mind. What he asked wasn’t necessarily what anyone expected a good-looking 30something dude to ask and it dominated headlines the next day:  ”Why did you make love to me if you didn’t love me?”

Andi acted like a snot and huffed that his question was “below the belt.” However, as Nick wrote in a long essay on ex-”Bachelor” Sean Lowe’s blog for the religion website Patheos.com, it was very much a question on Nick’s mind all along. He was expecting to have gotten engaged to Andi in a few days hence. He was deeply in love and sex, clearly, meant a lot more to him than it did to her. Keep reading »

Weddings may be full of age-old “rules,” but according to a new poll, views on strong-held nuptial traditions are slowly changing. A new Harris Poll surveyed 2,300 Americans this April to find out where they stand on old-school ideas about how heterosexual weddings are supposed to go down. Marriages might be changing, but weddings? Not so fast. Keep reading »

The Soapbox: In Praise Of Premarital Sex

in praise of premarital sex

There’s a lot that I don’t remember from high school. Algebra. Most of the Italian language. But something my high school health teacher said about premarital sex is still embedded in my mind 10 years on.

She said that on our wedding night, when we have sex with our (future) husband or wife, all the other people we’ve slept with would be sleeping alongside us. She meant it figuratively, of course — she was trying to get us to think about promiscuity through the frame of premarital sex being a bad thing. How crowded, she seemed to be asking, did we want our marital bed mattress to be? Keep reading »

Indonesia Says No To “Virginity Tests” On Senior High School Girls

todays lady news
  • Indonesian officials have said “thanks, but no thanks” to a proposal to require female high school seniors undergo what is referred to as “virginity testing,” but really means forcing a young woman to prove that she has a hymen. An education official on Sumatra suggested “virginity testing” would discourage premarital sex — apparently because some punishment would befall women who were not found to have a hymen. [ABC News]
  • Spike Lee listened to his critics and added seven films by women to his list of essential films given to NYU grad school students. That’s still not very many women on the entire list. But I guess we’ll take it, Spike. [IndieWire]
  • The anti-street harassment organization Hollaback! launched an app to report abuse to NYC officials in real time. [Feminist.org] Keep reading »

If you’re wondering where society went wrong, the uber-conservative, anti-gay Family Research Council has an idea: it was when the Supreme Court overturned a law that banned the sale of birth control to — gasp! — unmarried folks.

This week, FRC senior fellow Pat Fagan appeared on the radio show ”Washington Watch to blast premarital sex. “Society never gave young people that right,” he ranted. ”Functioning societies don’t do that, they stop it, they punish it, they corral people, they shame people, they do whatever.”  The right for single, consenting adults to have sex, that is.

Good thing this guy told us so now we know: we have no right to have sex out of wedlock. Whoopsies. [MediaiteHuffington Post]

What the rest of us call “cohabitation,” or in some circles “living in sin,” the Palin family calls a “trial marriage.”

That’s exactly what abstinence-promoter Bristol Palin and her boyfriend, 21-year-old Gino Paoletti, are doing in a home she purchased in Wasilla. “Bristol and Gino are crazy about each other,” a source told The National Enquirer. “They’ve talked about getting married, but they think it’s a good idea to get a feel for living together before making it official.” They’ll be sleeping in separate bedrooms, I trust?   Keep reading »
